it's been a pretty long time since our whole class came together, I really do miss the HC days too where everyone's so much closer. Haa..at least there's a thing call a class.. dont let our class fall apart ya? Anyway, here's a song with beautiful lyrics..to all who can see the beauty in it. Cheers..
Goodbye My Lover -- James Blunt
Did I disappoint you or let you down?
Should I be feeling guilty or let the judges frown?
'Cause I saw the end before we'd begun,
Yes I saw you were blinded and I knew I had won.
So I took what's mine by eternal right.
Took your soul out into the night.
It may be over but it won't stop there,I am here for you if you'd only care.
You touched my heart you touched my soul.
You changed my life and all my goals.
And love is blind and that I knew when,
My heart was blinded by you.
I've kissed your lips and held your head.
Shared your dreams and shared your bed.
I know you well, I know your smell.
I've been addicted to you.
Goodbye my lover.
Goodbye my friend.
You have been the one.
You have been the one for me.
I am a dreamer but when I wake,
You can't break my spirit - it's my dreams you take.
And as you move on, remember me,
Remember us and all we used to be
I've seen you cry, I've seen you smile.
I've watched you sleeping for a while.
I'd be the father of your child.
I'd spend a lifetime with you.
I know your fears and you know mine.
We've had our doubts but now we're fine,
And I love you, I swear that's true.
I cannot live without you.
And I still hold your hand in mine.
In mine when I'm asleep.
And I will bear my soul in time,
When I'm kneeling at your feet.Goodbye my lover.
I'm so hollow, baby, I'm so hollow.I'm so, I'm so, I'm so hollow.

heys everyone :)
this will be the last time i'm posting from singapore for a while! i really was very touched that you guys wanted to meet up last sunday, but sorry i had to visit my grandfather that night (mooncake night la) for the last time before i left :( even though i'll be in another land studying and trying to fulfil my dreams, my heart will always be back home and with my family and friends. anyway, if you guys ever decide to go away to study or even for extended periods of time, take my advice and pack early. dont be like me. i hate packing so much i cant even take the damn suitcase out of the storeroom. all i did was think about what i need whenever it came to mind and dump it on the dining table. now my dining table is a heap and mountain of clothes/underwear/gadgets/bags/shoes. i look at it and i feel sian about having to put them into the suitcases and boxes. i think when i get there, i'll just live out of the suitcase cos i dont think i can tahan unpacking either.
i'm crossing my fingers that i'll do okay so that i can dispense legal advice for you guys should you need it in future. if you ever come to me for sueing cases, i hope you are the sue-er not the sue-ee..
i'll miss home and you guys lah. email me okay? firstname.lastname@example.org is waiting to be flooded.

it has been ages since i last left a post.. well, i was quite stressed up with school.. i had 3 CAs b4 the mid sem break, and there's simply too much to study liao.. haha.. i'm a happie girl now! haha.. coz i finised all my CAs liao..
life has been rather tough for me.. many things have happened.. haiiz.. sometimes when i'm very unhappy or upset with things dat are happening to me, i wud think of the happie times we spent as a class in HC.. so much joy and laughter.. i think i was much happier then.. i guess in uni, there isn't a class system, dat's why i dun feel particularly close to any group of pple.. i am quite close to my OG mates in uni, but ultimately, we still take different modules.. it just feels different.. i miss our jc days..
sorry i couldn't make it for MAF.. had 2 CAs the following week, dat's why i had to give it a miss.. hope u guys had a great time! miss you guys!

hey guys! MAF was on the 10th, sat night. I thought alot of ppl were going!! sadly, i only saw jh, ben ,alex, cons, phyllis, chew yi and zhi han. a few seniors whom i forgot their names, also went too! haha! they even had to lag for a while to remember they were from the 02s73 batch. lol!!
Anyways, MAF this year was.. beautiful.. I felt the councillors did a really good job in the lightings and props. Above us, they had 4 long paper lanterns in a square formation, the traditional kind, filled with light bulbs. Then, surrounding it, were 3 stars made of many light bulbs each, with each star enveloping the smaller one. the 3 stars took turns to blink; it was simply fascinating.
This year's theme was gu4 xiang1, and the signature event of burning the "thing" at the flag poles there in central plaza was a5, i think rattan, lanterns surrounding the words gu xiang in chinese characters, i think also made of rattan or paper or sth. When the whole thing caught fire, the words were in flames and it was so nice to see. Pity i didn't have a camera. (but i think some of us took the pics).
Then, it was followed by the traditional chinese songs and then mass dance. Dick and I went to the 3rd level on the left wing to watch everybody sing and dance. lol! I realised one thing too.. The girls, after going to uni, have become more conscious of their appearance! LOL!! Dick was really enjoying every moment of it lah!! having a birds eye view.. haha..
Sad to say, most of us left after that, including me, cos the next day we have army half marathon, and had to wake up quite early, so we didn't go for supper. Maybe the girls went. haha.. (phyllis and constance pls update!)
About me, I'm now back at Nee Soon camp, suffering in silence (ok maybe not anymore since i've posted this msg :p) My fellow trainees are all living in fear and trepidation every moment there. The instructors are really horrible, and we don't see any purpose or reason in how they tekkan us. eg, they made us do area cleaning for 4 hours till 2 am in the morning, friday night somemore such that we couldn't book out on friday night. The worst thing was that we couldn't move AT ALL during the inspection, which could last as long as one hour. I tried sleeping while standing, cos we were really so tired!! haha.. what an experience.
Ok lah, damn long liao.. to those that are going overseas (th, xun anymore??) pls take care of yourselves.. Don't, seriously, don't party too much and get drunk and stuff, and into trouble. Yup, till next time,

Time really flies. In a blink of an eye it's September already and before you know it another year passes by...
Hey TH, glad to hear from you and to know that you're enjoying yourself there. Must say your hostel looks more like a tourist attraction than what it is... post more photos when you can! You've got a long time there, so fit yourself right in comfortably, make many friends, while widening your world in this new environment. Take good care of yourself and don't get into trouble! (Watch the partying.)
Weekdays don't exist for me anymore, it's now a dimensional void which I enter into a mindless & endless state of repeating routines. NS life is becoming a chore that is so mentally draining you just shut yourself off till weekends which I treasure so much more than before. I am making use of this time enrich myself as much as possible, hopefully picking up skills which I won't have the time for in Uni...
For all you gals in Uni, work hard but enjoy yourself too and do give yourself the rest you deserve. I've heard stories about Uni of weekend mugging and sleep-independent creatures...scary... so take care.
Is this too long? -_-"

its me... si si here. Rotting in school's comp lab now. Had chemistry lab frm 9-12. now waiting for 4 o'clock lecture. Sucky timetable. Glad to see that this blog is still surviving...
Me majoring in chemistry in NUS. Things are getting chime... Not like A' Levels... Everyone arnd me like mugging very hard... argh stress siaz... everyday like studying for exams. Guys, enjoy yourself while you can in NS...
So far sch's ok... Have a few complaints though... The Bus 95 service is driving me crazy. It's the only bus that goes FoS and only comes like once in 20 mins. Lab is so pro now, must wear lab coats and googles, cannot wear contacts... Its basically like 3 hours sauna in your body heat.
Haiz... missed the JC days, the class bench and HC. I really enjoy reading the entries in this blog. It is a way to be updated about each other's going-ons. So pple must post at least once a month kayez.
Gotta go now. Shall go take a nap before lect starts. Otherwise will end up in a semi conscious state during lecture again... heez

Hey people! How's life going on over in Singapore? Is school fun? I have to make an entry now or else this blog is gonna like rot and decompose and melt and seep into the groud into the drains and into the sea. Anyways, what the hell, you guys gotta post more.
Well, it is time that I want to tell story! Haha, I took a like 20 plus hour plane trip to Detroit via Seoul and Los Angeles. Man, the trip was tiring. Anyways, I landed and took a $40 US dollar ride to school, that's a whopping S$70 ride. Haha. My school is like really cool, like a dream place. It's in a small town called ann arbor and the city is just build inside and around the university. The buildings here are like those oldish looking ones and they just seem to have so much history and feelings in them. Man, and there's those little busy streets filled with cafes and small little art shops. This is just like the movies.
AND, the school is filled with 34245222 super fat and cute and big squirrels.
The things here are ex, so i don't wanna talk about it, sob, textbooks costs over US$100 here. Anyway, my lessons has started and hell, this place is filled with endless activities. There's parties almost everyday and there's school parties out in the fields where they have stages and HUGE speakers. Football is huge here and there's partying every saturday before and after the games. (which we usually win)
My roommates are cool! I have an half egyptian roommate (surname = elramsisy) with afro hair! He's like cute and tall. Haha, my dorm here are nice looking but rather shabby on the inside but I will live with it. And school has started and I am doing Materials Science and Engineerng. (Finishing in 3 years) I am trying to choose a research project. Do you get titles in Singapore like "Bioengineered heart muscle for myocardial regeneration"? Wow, this is like cooooool. Lessons here are pretty light so I get to do a lot more stuff outside of the class, maybe I'll take up rock climbing and maybe salsa? Hahaha. Funky man.
Aye, to end off, I just want to say that University is the time for the last charge. The last stretch of the education we have before we step into the society. It is like the time when we are ready for mighty jump, when you prepare and store as much energy as possible. It is last push, the time we get ourselves ready, arm ourselves with knowledge and experience. We have to end it with no regrets and be ready to start our working life with a BANG!
Comon, ppl, come and post and tell us about ur lifes! UpdaTE!!
